Life Story of Barry Bostwick

Tall (6' 4"), agile, energetic, and ever-so-confident as both actor and singer, especially on the award-winning Broadway stage, Barry Bostwick possesses that certain narcissistic poise, charm and élan that reminds one instantly (and humorously) of a Kevin Kline -- both were quite brilliant in their respective interpretations of The Pirate King in "The Pirates of Penzance". Yet, for all his diverse talents (he is a Golden Globe winner and was nominated for the Tony Award three times, winning once), Barry is indelibly caught in a time warp. Even today, 35 years after the fact, he is indelibly associated with the role of nerdy hero Brad Majors in the midnight movie phenomena The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975). While it is extremely flattering to be a part of such a cult institution, Barry's acting legacy deserves much more than this.

He was born Barry Knapp Bostwick on February 24, 1945, in San Mateo, California, one of two sons of Elizabeth "Betty" (Defendorf) and Bud Bostwick (Henry Bostwick), a city planner and actor. A student at San Mateo High School, he and his elder brother Peter use to put on musicals and puppet shows for the neighborhood kids. Barry attended...

Barry Bostwick was mentored by the Tony Award-winning actor-director Ellis Rabb when Barry was a young actor in New York in the late '60s with the APA-Phoenix Repertory Company. "Ellis was a wonderful man," said Bostwick, who made his Broadway debut with the APA-Phoenix Repertory Company in 1969 in Sean O'Casey's "Cock-a-Doodle Dandy." "Ellis even paid for my first crowns because my teeth weren't very good," Bostwick said. "He would take me around to Leonard Bernstein's apartment, and we would sit there and have a drink and some of the greats would come in and sort of chat. I was the fly on the wall. I was so fortunate." Though nearly 20 years younger than Bostwick, Michael J. Fox was also mentor to him on the award-winning 1996-2002 ABC comedy series "Spin City," in which he played the dimwitted New York City mayor to Fox's deputy mayor. Fox, he said, showed him the sit-com ropes. "He was very smart about that genre of comedy," said Bostwick. "I would watch him work and watch him suss out what the problems were. He was so smart about what worked and what didn't work.".

Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick in Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)

Bostwick, who frequently attends Comic-Con-style conventions because of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show," was excited about the film's big 40th-anniversary New York City convention held in September, 2015. The musical, which also starred Susan Sarandon and Tim Curry, has saved a lot of lives, Bostwick noted, because people found a community going to the midnight screenings. "People found who they were through that movie. I can't tell you the number of people who come up to me and say it was one of the most meaningful if not the most meaningful moments in their lives when they first saw that movie and were part of the audience".
